MATHIAS BELLINO 2017 HUSQVARNA FACTORY BIKE TEST
Husqvarna Factory bike test in Italy I had the opportunity to test Mathias Bellino Husqvarna 450 FE with the difference in power i was intrigued to see the difference this bike had to offer and it didn’t disappoint.
Interestingly i found it comfortable to handle and proved it capabilities on the harder sections on the track. The bike was noticeably nippier on the tighter corners due to its new significantly lighter frame weighing 8.8kg, 0.6kg lighter than its predecessor with the new 6 speed gearbox it pulled away good in the higher gears due the extra to torque. The bike was easy moveable around and with the less weight it made the rock sections and loose riverbed quick and easy to turn in any direction. Overall Mathias Bellino bike was a pleasure to ride and with me not being a big fan of 4 strokes I felt the 450FE had changed massively from the earlier models and a great ride for any amateur or professional rider.
